: well, we should look at irene. this will cause at least as much problem as irene. i expect this to get their act right back together and do not be viced if this is a category two or category three by sunday before it turned to the northwest. it is very warm water in the atlantic. very warm. we back in the 1950s. we had ten major hurricanes on the east coast including hazel in 1954 in mid-october which had a path similar to this but it was to the west. that want into north carolina and you notice this storm is attacking from the southeast, right? and basically, it is that path superimposed to the east so hazel led to wind gusts at 100. >>neil: what makes it a mess for the northeast, combining with the other areas? >>guest: what makes it, (a), it moves slow and intensifies miling water to the northeast beaches. that is first. >>neil: and it sits? >>guest: full moon and look at the way the coast is shaped. it is shaped so you funnel water into new york city and push the storm surge in. the normal hurricane like irene comes along the coast and heads for long island and we get flooding alon
a blustery, nasty day. >> before this made landfall, this storm seemingly crushed irene. there really is no comparison, right? >> there's no comparison. i guess you could say, this is kind of like new york city's katrina. just devastating impacts here. this historic surge, 13 feet, all that water coming on in and the high wind gusts. worst-case scenario did pan out here unfortunately. >> all right. mark mann cue sew from accuweather. the airlines trying to get back to normalcy and what the red cau cross is doing to help out. >> plus more incredible rescues that didn't have to happen. we'll be right back. en. we'll be right back. >> announcer: "america this morning" brought to you by 5 hour energy. 5-hour energy supports the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. so i can get the energized feeling i need and support a great cause? i'm sold. pink lemonade 5-hour energy? yeah and a portion of every sale goes to the avon foundation for women breast cancer crusade. i'm sold. new pink lemonade 5-hour energy. get the alert, energized feeling you need and support breast cancer resea
into new england so we don't have much to compare to. irene last year, then you can go back to hazel in the '50s, but most people don't remember that so this has a chance to be one for the record books. >> to underline it for people on the east coast, when will they feel impact? >> florida today and tomorrow but big impacts sunday north carolina, up through mid-atlantic, monday into tuesday morning. >> early in the week. thanks for keeping an eye on it. >>> let's turn to sports. game one of the world series between giants and tigers in san francisco. ra cy young winner justin verlander making the start on a lot of rest and he was rusty. pablo sandoval gets one over the center field wall. giant with a 1-0 lead on that solo shot. his big night just getting started. third inning, giant up 2-0. sandoval going the other way off verlander. two-run home run, sneaks over the wall. giants up big there. verlander allowed -- had allowed just two runs in his previous three starts this postseason. gave up five in just four innings last night. meanwhile, barry zito dealing, triking out danny wuert
of hurricane irene which proved economically devastating for the region. if you want to sound smart, tell them because of the cost an estimated dlb 7 to $10 billion in damages according to "the new york times." it puts it among the ten costliest storms in the u.s. >> they are going to be taking a trip to hawaii for the next one. >> everyone is taking a couple weeks off. >> they are going to convert some of the ice cream trucks into power line trucks. >> you stop it. you be nice. we're going to gather around the water cooler. this better not get messed up. this is apparently he's going to show us political news. he's going to bring it to the table today. >> you had a lot of smut last week. give us your best shot. >> mika will be happy. we have some political news. lenah dunnham, a great show. she's got a new campaign ad out online. she's got a not so subtle metaphor for getting people to the polls. why don't we take a look at it. >> the the first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. a guy with beautiful, someone who cares about and understands women. a guy wh
for this outdoor reporting. >> been bringing us great updates. >> she dade great job too last year with irene. i think she was in north carolina. >> anyway, we'll check back in with kayla later this morning. let's also take a look at the markets. the futures are indicated higher after all the concerns that have been out there. the s&p futures up by more than 9.5 points. the dow futures are up by 65 points. not a lot of news stories that have been coming through. you've heard some earnings here and there. yesterday we had ford out early with better than expected numbers early. and there are a few other stories that have been out there, too. you guys see the ubs story? >> 10,000 jobs. >> 10,000 jobs this they were laying off. a lot of people found out when they showed up for work in london and their cards didn't work. other people found out because their e-mail kept bouncing back. that's the worst situation i've ever heard. it's not going to get nearly enough attention because of all the other things that are happening out there. >> did you see the other big merger yesterday? disney and "star wars
irene making it the fourth costly experienced? >> this is will be worse. three storms. we've never seen anything like this. it's definitely going to be devastating. >> gregg: i was reading forbes, i wish we could put it on o up the scream. beside for potential life and safety, economists are predicting that it will upwards of $55 billion in economic damage? >> yeah, it's hard to tell. we don't really know how it'sng. estimates are all over the place. there is one positive. sectors that desperately need more work, construction workers, electricians, plumbers all the rest, they will be finding more work. so there is some stimulus there, but again it's mainly to the negative. >> gregg: if you are contractor out there, this maybe the silver lining. the other thing, we have seen in past disasters that it dramatically affects unemployment and g.d.p. because those are tied together? >> absolutely. people won't be going to work. as you said, retailers won't be selling, there won't be tax revenues. and g.d.p. measures how much we produce. if we are not producing that much, with that many people
of that was west of the coast, at least where i was we didn't get the rain we got with irene, not even close. >> right, we were most concerned about the flooding because of the tidal action. right there, yeah, the surge, we have wonderful beaches and between dewey beach and bethany beach we had to close route 1. there are a lot of others we had to close throughout the state. the bay communities were hit hard but we've got people out looking right now. we think we escaped the worst of it. >> and total cost for delaware, any idea yet in. >> we don't know. we have people as we say looking right now, i think it will take us a little while to figure that out. certainly concerned about the 44,000 families without power but we're obviously looking forward to utility crews getting out there as soon as, once conditions permit them to be out there. they can't be in harm's way if the winds are too high. >> for your state was this not as significant or not as negative of an outcome as irene, governor? >> well, i mean i'd put it this way we have a lot of flooding and we do have 40,000 plus people without
% or more out at this hour. and as we saw with irene then again with the october snowstorm, it can take a long time, perhaps a week or even nine or ten days before the power gets restored for a lot of folks. >> jeff stecker from wvit. thank you for that update. to the point he was making that it's so dark outside, there's so much water out there, there are so many downed lines. take this advice. this came from the fairfield police chief. "we have limited responsibilities, please stay inside your house and we are expecting massive damage." and i think that that would apply to communities up and down the eastern seaboard. we will continue msnbc's live coverage of hurricane sandy right after this. [ ryan ] it doesn't get any better than endless shrimp at red lobster. you can mix and match all day! [ male announcer ] don't miss red lobster's endless shrimp, just $14.99! try as much as you like, any way you like! like parmesan crusted shrimp. hurry in, offer ends soon! i'm ryan isabell and i see food differently. hurry in, offer ends soon! wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo
's preventing anything from turning back out to sea. even irene moved up along the coast and parallel but scooted on .n out. that central atlantic block is probably going to force the iorm westward. the cold pool over the eastern united states, that's the winter storm you were referring to you. , thaake all the tropical energy, all the heat from the tropics, you combine it with winter cold, that's an explosive ingredient in the atmosphere and that's why we think this storm has so much potential. i encourage everybody to pay attention to what their local emergency management personnel tell them. >> pelley: the last major hurricane to hit the u.s. this late in the season, was wilma, sven years ago today. maat was a category three storm. it killed five people in florida that and caused more than $20 billion in damage. it's the third costliest hurricane in the u.s. after andrew and katrina. we are down to the last 12 days of campaign 2012. that mpoll out tonight suggests that mitt romney has closedly the gender gap. last month, president obama led poig women by 16 points, but rew, they're
." capable of causing more damage than hurricane irene last year. the height of the storm should be tuesday, and it will take its sweet time making an exit. churning in the atmosphere over the same spots for five or even six days. now, depending on where you live, it may bring up to six inches of rain, 80-mile-per-hour wind gusts, 20 to 30-foot high seas and extreme coastal flooding. it's all during a full moon, too, when tides are even higher. it could even bring half a foot of heavy, wet snow as far inland as ohio. >> 60% chance that sandy will hit us. >> reporter: that's why east coast emergency management teams are gearing up and extra help is being brought in from other states. emergency officials up and down the east coast are warning people that you can't wait. you have to get your emergency kits and emergency plans in place now. diane? >> ginger, thank you so much. now abc's weather editor sam champion is here. show us these giant forces of nature about to collide, sam. >> reporter: superstorm, monster storm. this one has three ingredients, diane, so, let's run through them. first o
say it can be worse than irene. >> don't pay attention to it being downgraded. it doesn't mean anything. it's not really completely a tropical storm. it's going to be transitioning to what we kind of consider a nor'easter. we are accustomed to nor'easters. that kind of a event. moisture associated with a tropical storm. tropical storm holds a lot more water in the atmosphere as it transitions. that water is still going to be there radar picture showing the rain is following across parts of the carolinas. the rain is going to be heavy all day. battering waves, a lot of wind. beach erosion and that sort of thing here. go forward on the track of this storm. continues to move northeast. takes this unprecedented left-hand hook. that's where we've begin to go through a transition to a different type of a storm. people are used to hurricanes strengthening when there is warm water. this isn't going to be strengthening for those purpose purposes. snran way a nor'easter strengthens. european model track shows this. right around parts of jiewj. i want to point out other things on this map
we had last year with irene and all the damage with that. not too dissimilar storm. potential impacts and winds this time, much bigger story, i think we'll see winds 60-80 miles an hour and this time a long storm, 24-36 hours. that means we'll see a plotted more people with significant power outages and lots of damage to the beaches. >> shep: and cold. rick riechmuth will keep on it day in and day out. 12 days until americans pick the next president. new poll governor romney gaining ground in a crucial battleground state. president obama's lead among women voters in virginia is down 12 points and it's six points. it shows the president and governor are tied at 47% among women voters nationwide. month ago he a 16-point lead. women are projected to make up more than 16% of the electorate. they have cut the men 13 points to five points. a spokesperson says she is not buying it. any poll that shows us tied with women and men is not a poll we are placing bets on in vegas. president targeting three it's a as he wraps up a 48-hour campaign marathon and governor romney is doing the make or br
and it is getting colder. it is not like we didn't know the storm was coming. we had learning moments with irene and another winter storm that hit us with a punch and a lot of the simple things they do not communicate properly and we do not have the out of state crews work properly with our local utilities and con-ed still is not delivering dry ice. i have been personally out there delivering the try ice that has been provided and when you get off the back of the truck the ice was gone. people need it. >>neil: but it is more than that. i know in tokyo or places that are ravaged by earthquakes and tsunamis with each one they build a stronger building, but here, they build the same transformer that is no more upgraded to withstand serious weather than the prior one and we are right back in the same pot. >>guest: i share the senate homeland security committee and i will reach out and continue to reach out to the governor and my colleague, outside of new york -- outside of jerusalem, new york city is the number one target for terrorists. the utilities view manpowers and hours as an expense and new y
. no doubt about it. you look at hurricane irene, tropical storm irene, the cost to state and local governments of new york was $1.2 billion. that was for recovery and cleanup. clearly this is going to be an economic hit on us. dimensions of which we just don't know yet. >> it's interesting how it impacted with mta shut down and people unable to get into manhattan for example. lower manhattan almost deserted. certainly very few businesses operating and few businesses operating at night. how does that work its way through the economy? >> very significantly. we take for granted the extensive public transportation system we have in the new york city metropolitan area. it's the life blood to our economy. when that life blood is not pumping, it will have a serious impact. it's not just how soon will trains be running but will be repair costs? they will be significant. mta had its own financing troubles particularly with regard to that capital program. they obviously weren't anticipating the kind of damage that this storm has brought. a long-term where we're at with financing for the mta
people anticipated. the opposite of irene. today we're seeing plays in stock names that have been around for a few days, guys ahead of the curve playing last week, take a look at a few of them, hubble makes hardware that's used on the pole lines that's maintained by utilities, that stock is up today, generac makes power generators, big with portable and standby, big play last week, 20% move, beacon roofing up last week, up again today. armstrong world makes flooring, that moved, up 6%. crawford & company provides claims insurance. so that is going to help them out. so these stocks have been around and because people underestimated the impact of the storm, big movers today. >> michael, we've heard it's business as usual for the most part there in chicago. what are you expecting to see as the week goes by? >> well i think what we're going to continue to see is what the market expected today which was liquidity and stability in the markets and also a couple levels that were key in the marketplace, one being 1397 in the s&p and more importantly 130 in the euro as we saw the dollar look to ha
. irene is calling us from baltimore. what do you say irene. are you there? >> caller: yes, i am. >> bill: hi, what's your point. >> caller: they are trying the same way with bill clinton and white water with monica lewinsky, spend millions of dollars on lies. now obama speaks the truth to the people. there's no reason for this. >> bill: i thought joe biden laid it out clearly exactly what the facts were. >> caller: yes he did. and to be a republican, you have to be a liar, a cheat and a thief. >> bill: well, i appreciate it. thank you so much. look the facts in this, what's going on is the republicans are doing something, if democrats did this, they would have been crying bloody murder. republicans are taking a terrorist attack against americans, the murder of an american ambassador, and trying to exploit that, use it for cheap political purposes. it's disgusting. it's despicable. it's something we all ought to condemn. on the campaign front here's a recognizable voice the latest ad put out by the obama campaign morgan freeman returns to do his job. >> every president inherits challenges
rode out irene here also. i figured even if this storm was many orders of magnitude bigger, which it was, i'd only get a little flooding, and thankfully, at high tide on monday night -- 8:22 p.m., i'll always remember that exact time -- that turned out to be the case. megyn: for you they did, for others not so much. it's a very narrow island where the ocean is on one side and the bay is on the other, and i believe it's only one time in history that the two met due to storm surge or other reasons, and it happened this time with the main road that runs through long beach island looking like an ocean, and you can see some of the devastation in these pictures that resulted. describe the scene as you know it now outside. >> um, well, i can't see very much of the island. as you head down the main boulevard south from my town, you eventually -- in the southbound lane you come to a police car with its lights flashing, and they'll tell you the only people south of that point are, um, you know, crucial personnel or anyone who agrees to be escorted off the island by the police. so that's as
of practice with stuff like this, whether it's irene a week ago, isaac, months ago and we're mobilizing blood, making sure the blood supply needs to be in the key areas of the country. >> rick: the last minute preparations, there isn't a lot of time left. any last minute thing you can suggest to people that they do? >> the most important thing right now in the last minute if there's little time to get out and make sure you've got the food and water you need in terms of your kit, is to have a battery operated radio, something that can give you the ability to listen to any evacuation orders or any emergency notices that may be going out. >> rick: all right, charles one last thing-- >> mention that the red cross has-- >> that's exactly where i was going to lead you i saw the phone in your hand and talk about an app? >> i am going to talk about a hurricane app. the red cross has a hurricane app that's available for apple and android, folks can download it, it's got a tremendous "i'm safe" feature that allows people with a one push of a button let friends and family know they're safe and an import
